Subject: Re: Multifont: testing & feedback (HD spinning)

Re: Multifont: testing & feedback (HD spinning)

From: Greg Haerr <greg_at_censoft.com>

: If we increase each font buffer to 45kb we can ensure that only the
: biggest fonts go through the cache (about 74% of fonts then are small
: enough to be loaded entirely). Obviously that increases overhead quite a
: bit (from ~50kb to ~225kb).

It sounds like the font buffer should be shared between
fonts, so that each "loaded" font doesn't use an entirely
new buffer.

: The font cache code is basically unchanged, so even with a smaller
: buffer the performance should be no worse than using a large font with
: the current single font code.

The font cache code should be changed to use a font number and
character code, so that it also can be shared between loaded
fonts, rather than having a separate cache per font.

Regards,

Greg
